A Visit to Bishop Museum, Celebrating the Feast of St. Damien

A Visit to Bishop Museum

Celebrating the Feast of St. Damien

The timing was perfect as St. Damien’s feast day was on May 11 and our visit was on May 12. His statue was adorned with leis and beautiful flowers.  Students offered an Oli chant to St. Damien in strong unison.
